New Monitoring Exercise for the Segundo Cabo Palace
Within the framework of the policy of regular monitoring of projects financed by the European Union (EU), the "Heritage Recovery and Cultural Development in Havana: Segundo Cabo Palace" project, a multilateral cooperation initiative between the EU, UNESCO and the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana (OHCH), will be the subject of a monitoring exercise next week.
The methodology of this external monitoring exercise employs the same evaluation parameters and criteria as any other system of monitoring and management evaluation over the course of a project, within a logical framework. It provides an outside perspective of how the project is being carried out, including its strengths and weaknesses, and proposes alternatives or corrections. The results are presented in a consolidated report which contains appraisals in relation to the current state of affairs, as at the time of the visit, in relation to the appropriateness and quality of design, efficiency, effectiveness, and perspectives on the potential impacts and the sustainability of the project.
The previous monitoring exercise took place during November 2011. That exercise was very successful, not only for its appraisal of the development of the project but also for its recommendations and assessments in relation to how it could be improved.
